I have a membership at the Toronto Tool Library which has a branch in my neighbourhood. I don't use it very often, but it comes in handy because I couldn't afford to buy all those tools myself and as an apartment-dweller have nowhere to put them anyway.

social.coop is a coop-run corner of the fediverse, a cooperative and transparent approach to operating a social platform. We are currently closed to new memberships while we improve our internal processes and policies, and plan to re-open to new folks when that work is complete. [9/2/2018]
